I mean, if you believe that death is "it", why should you care where they bury you?
It's not gonna matter, now is it?
I used to, but now I can't be bothered. Once my Mother goes, I'm going to make arrangements to have my body donated to science. (although ... it is freaky to think of Med Students operating on your corpse!)
Burn me. Save the funeral cash and take a trip or throw a party in my honor
Comfort is key.
Another fun uplifting thread for all of us to enjoy i see.
Burial feels like an arcane ritual to me, I'm going into the furnace.
i had to watch an autopsy once. my living will says NO Autopsy unless required by law because i was merdered or something like that.
some of my loved ones got cremated and their ashes scattered in various places. sounds like a plan.
Cremation. Have my ashes spread at a nice spot. Have a little party in my honor.
Throw my body into the middle of traffic. I don't give a fuck what happens after I'm gone.
I always thought I would be cremated and my ashes scattered in the ocean, so I could swim with the dolphins. However, the great Neil Degrasse Tyson said & perhaps I am starting to agree...
"I would request that my body in death be buried not cremated, so that the energy content contained within it gets returned to the earth, so that flora and fauna can dine upon it, just as I have dined upon flora and fauna during my lifetime”
I want to be stuffed and left on my pool raft to work on my tan.
I'd like to go out Gram Parsons style...
I'm donating my body to science, figure it's a way to give back and actually mean something in some way. They'll basically take anyone as long as it's not death by suicide. They do with what they need of me and then dispose of me, all on their dime. Myself and family pay nothing, unless they want my ashes.
Cremated with the urn placed in the Memorial Terrace Columbarium, Forest Lawn - Glendale (So Cal)
I think here it's required by law that it basically costs the same either way.
That said, I would like to go out like Hunter Thompson.
all i know is the older you get the more you think about it
